    The Nokia 808 PureView -- winner of the GSMA Global Mobile Awards 2012 and 2012 TIPA Award for Best Imaging Innovation -- shocked everyone at this year's Mobile World Congress with its 41-megapixel camera sensor. Many understood the PureView Technology from the very beginning while others were simply considering it overkill. Nokia wanted to come up with a worthy successor to the Nokia N8, former King of Camera-phones, and the Finnish company believed that the 808 PureView would be just that. However, straight from the beginning, the 808 PureView raised eyebrows because of the platform used ...

    As you can see for yourself in the pictures below, or if you happen to be in Helsinki in front of the Nokia store, the Finnish company is preparing "something amazing" which would be unveiled/available on September 7, 2012. We know that Nokia's annual Nokia World is taking place on September 5-6 of this year, in Helsinki, so the teaser in the flagship store might have something to do with devices announced at the event. Whether it will be a Windows Phone 8 handset,  Symbian or accessories is anyone's guess (not that we'd mind a Nokia tablet, but Nokia has somewhat denied the possibility ...

    After seeing just what the PureView Technology is in reality and how it works, we compared the image and video capturing capabilities of the Nokia 808 PureView with some hot phones on the market right now. As described in the PureView Technology piece, one of its main features is lossless zoom. We have a couple of images for you to check out; the captions on each image will describe the mode used to shoot, but of course, you need to check out the full resolution versions by clicking them open. Note: You may want to scroll to the bottom of this post to check out the focus and zoom demo ...

    Not often we have the chance of comparing phones with excellent imaging capabilities. The Apple iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X are all known to deliver great capturing functionality (and we know we're a couple of devices short on the list, but these are the hottest at the moment). We've took the above three, plus the Nokia 808 PureView, for a spin. Pictures and videos captured in real life, side-by-side, just to make sure every tech and marketing talk on paper has a solid basis in reality. First off, let's talk pictures! In the comparisons below we have set all phones to ...

    What we've been telling everyone here on Pocketnow -- in articles, editorials, videos and even on the Pocketnow Weekly podcast -- seems to be exactly what the general perception in technology is today: "megapixels don't count". We will now tell you the exact opposite: "megapixels do count", but only if they are used the way Nokia is employing them in its PureView technology. Why Can't It Take 41-Megapixel Images? You see, many people will think that "41 megapixels is overkill", "41 megapixels is useless", and so on. We're here to vehemently contradict them, and, after you will understand ...

    When Nokia introduced the 808 PureView at this year's MWC, everybody was shocked to hear that the Finnish manufacturer packed a 41-megapixel sensor inside the phone. Of course, Nokia wanted a decent follow-up to the Nokia N8 which was, for a long time, the king of camera phones. Now, the new King is here! The box contains the 808 PureView, an 1,400mAh battery pack, a wall charger, USB cable for syncing and charging, a wrist-wrap and in-ear noise canceling headphones. The 808 PureView is powered by a 1.3GHz processor, aided by a dedicated Broadcom BCM2763, has a four-inch ClearBlack AMOLED ...

    Richard Kerris, Nokia's Vice President of Worldwide Developer Relations, unveiled that "it wont be long" until Verizon fans will finally get the opportunity to use Nokia devices. Currently the Finnish phone maker has no offering on Big Red and future possible customers are either left waiting for a Nokia phone or have to leave for another carrier in order to grab one. Unfortunately, no exact time frame was made public. As far as the PureView technology is concerned, the one which debuted on the Symbian-powered 808 which is, as of now, available in the U.S., it will come to Windows ...

    It's nearly 14mm thick, tips the scales at 169g, and sports a display of only four inches. Its radio includes 3G support for just one American network, with 2G support for another, and not a hint of LTE in sight. The one band that could have given it additional 3G connectivity, 1700MHz, was present on the European version but excised from its North American variant. Though it may receive the occasional update, its operating system is effectively a dead platform, running at 1.3GHz on a single-core CPU. Oh, and it costs nearly $700. Yes, the North American version of the Nokia 808 PureView ...

    The Nokia 808 PureView, while announced at this year's MWC, is still not available in most of the markets (U.K. included) but it looks like the Finnish manufacturer might follow up on the information according to which the 41-megapixel camera with a phone will be landing in the U.S. Nokia U.S. posted these two images on its Facebook wall. While these left everyone wondering what it will be exactly that Nokia is planning on introducing on June 18 (this Monday), the consensus seems to be the 808 PureView. The map above represents Hawaii and the area code for Hawaii is 808. The image below ...

    The Nokia 808 PureView will most probably take over the title of "king of camera phones" from the Nokia N8 (and later on from the Apple iPhone 4S and the rest) but the main problem with the phone is that it is running a platform, Symbian, abandoned by Nokia. We heard that the PureView technology might be landing eventually on Windows Phone but Chris Webber, President of Nokia U.S., admitted that the company is working on bringing the technology to Windows Phone. A combination of Lumia and PureView will definitely give both the Finnish manufacturer and Microsoft a boost since the current ...
